Similarly, a huge number of gamers are also live stream PUBG for fellow players to learn new skills and make money while they do it. If you’re interested in streaming PUBG from your Android, iOS, Windows or Mac device, following guide will make your day!
How to Live Stream PUBG from Smartphones, PC or Mac OS
Before you start streaming PUBG, you should select your platform, and generate a streaming key to use with your live streaming software. But where does your target audience spends the most time?
Where you should stream? – YouTube, Facebook Live or Twitch? What kind of PUBG live streamer do you want to be?
The most important thing you should research is, where do you want to live stream PUBG gameplay. Before you start streaming, be a good audience first. See what other streamers are doing on platforms like Twitch or YouTube, and how they interact with their audience. How they reward them, or how they have built their communities over time.
Being an Indian myself, if I have to stream in local language like Hindi, I will go with the YouTube platform or Facebook Live. India’s live streaming audience has just started watching mainly due to games like PUBG, and they are not on the more mature streaming platform like Twitch.
On the other hand, if I have to stream in the English language, and connect with the global audience, Twitch would be my choice of platform. So I considered language, the platform of acceptance among the users in this case. Like this, you can dig deeper and identify what should be the age of your audience, and what else they watch, and their overall demographic.
The more you know about your audience, more the engaging your PUBG live stream will be, and ways you can generate revenue from the engagement. Most important of all decide you are going to be a funny or entertaining streamer or serious streamer like Shroud who have unbeatable skills to win at PUBG, and people just come to watch your gameplay.
